5:32 am
the community along rhode island avenue, flooded out already four times during big storms this year. city crews, though, cleaned out the sewers, delivered some sandbags and that helped avoid any serious damage during these storms last night. 9news now reporter kristin fiver is live in cheverly with some people who were not so lucky. good morning, kristin. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, mike. overall the storm damage from yesterday's storms relatively minor. but not here. the storm damage very major. the homeowner has been forced to leave her home and here's why. she's got a tarp covering her roof after a tree smashed through it. she's dealing with some pretty substantial structural damage to her home which is over a hundred years old. check out the porch. it is literally been sheared off from side of this house all because of this tree right over here. tree removal crews tried to get rid of it yesterday but there was too much stuff. they're going to have to come
5:33 am
back later today and get it all out and there were trees down all over the area. this one of the worst but, you know, it was really also the drivers that had to deal with a lot during yesterday's storms. take a look at this video of what it was like driving on the road at the worst part of it. there were high winds, heavy downpours, lots of flash flooding, especially in the city of frederick and lots of trees down all over the area, especially in prince george's county and fret dick county. -- frederick county. there was one serious car accident in derwood. two people injured. we're not totally sure about their conditions at this point in time but it was a pretty serious accident. so we're hoping they're okay this morning. we're also very grateful that the woman here in this home is okay. take a listen to what she had so say. >> people need to be aware that when these storms come through, take notice if the wind is blowing rapidly.
5:34 am
go to the lowest level of the home, just for safety. that's what i was on my way to do. but unfortunately it got to me before i got to the bottom of the stairs. >> reporter: that woman was actually in the bathroom about to move to a secure location which she heard the huge boom. she said it happened so fast. one second the storm had just started to move n. the next second she has this huge tree all the way through her bedroom. she says this morning she is just lucky to be alive. close call. >> you are not kidding. imagine the noise that must have made when your whole roof is crunching in. thanks, kristin live in cheverly this morning. the circuit court in richmond is going to hear a lawsuit challenging lethal injection in virginia. a pair of alexandria lawyers filed this suit earlier this year, and they claim virginia executioners are illegally practicing medicine, pharmacy and anesthesiology without licenses. the department of corrections
5:35 am
counters that since the purpose is for an execution to end a life. they say it's not a medical procedure. thought we were out of the woods. a forecast for fewer stink bugs this year is now changing. it appears they're about to launch a new invasion. experts say stink bug numbers were actually down earlier this year from the year before, but as temperatures started to rise, so did their numbers. now that the numbers of stink bugs have built up in area farms and gardens, it's about to get colder and that temperature will drive them into buildings looking for heat instead. >> like our house. 5:35. time for another your money report now. >> jessica doyle is back with a big hiring blitz you call it. >> i've got the heebie jeeb byes looking at those videos. let's talk about something upbeat. more than 52,000 holiday employees are planned to be hired for kohl's, up 10% from
